            Dreamweaver MX is a good program, but it reflects the state of the web
            six years ago at the time of its release. Dreamweaver CS4 has been
            brought up to date with improved support for modern web standards. Live
            view and the Code Navigator make it much easier to work with CSS, as do
            vertical Split view and Related Files. Used in combination, they make it
            a lot easier to edit CSS and see the results immediately in the Document
            window.

            Why not wait until the 30-day trial version is available (should be
            later this month)? Give it a try and see for yourself whether it fits
            your needs.

              Well there are many. But frankly, if you write code, you can everything you can with CS4 with MX (just by hand).

              For the basic stuff they are the same. Sure, there are UI differences, but you still click the same button to create a table.

                  Easy way to create a table is to click Insert > Table. Or you can aces it from the Insert menu.

                  David is right. Wait for the trial and try it out. If you on Mac, give the trail a chance. Cause the UI is completely different.
